Storyline

Steve Ford (Bruce Willis) is a down but not out L.A based Private Investigator whose professional and personal worlds collide after his loving pet Buddy is stolen by a notorious gang. A series of crazy circumstances find him doing the gang's bidding, while being chased by two vengeful Samoan brothers, a loan shark's goons, and a few other shady characters. They say a dog is a man's best friend, and Steve shows how far a man will go to be reunited with him. Written by https://teaser-trailer.com

Trivia

According to Ralph Garman, on a podcast (Hollywood Babble-On), he is not in the movie anymore because his scenes were cut. This was due to Bruce Willis deeming the scenes featuring Garman unnecessary to shoot. See more »

Goofs

When Steve Ford jams door with shovel, you can clearly see someone standing behind the door, though it would mean that someone from Spyder's gang is there and knows about Steve's presence in garage. See more »

Robbing Peter to pay Paul
25 June 2017 | by yard_boySee all my reviews

Pure shtick that reminded me of the old "Airplane" movies. Bruce Willis does comedy well and has a great supporting cast: - a thin and bi-polar John Goodman - Famke Janssen in a much lighter role that her Blacklist espionage - a little bit of Kal Penn playing a 3rd world bodega clerk.

Willis has to jump through a web of interconnected heists in hope of recovering his stolen dog. The bits are klutzy and brilliant to the end. While I was amused, I cannot recommend over all the other greater movies.
